The Dark Light

Moving towards those rough paths, Stones hit me hard
Bled I profusely still walked apart
Trying to unfold every piece coming through
I welcomed Life to the unborn disappointment..
I fell, I broke down, I felt like giving up forever
Nothing inspired, No light, No darkness ever developed
Thirst of the unreachable not quenched
Belief tore me, Still woke me up somewhere..
Numb inside, Smiling outside, Hurt inside, Dwelling outside,
Fluctuations never failed to surprise
Happy a moment, Sad the second, Rule unmade
What is Life, ever got an answer? Unsaid..
Tonight I watch up that sky, A little twinkling star keeps me up
Lost I am, Galaxies enough
Swimming through the smothered pool of dilemmas
Give me back my questions, Answers are tough..

    Ashwin, it is too good.
    A little less words and more imagery, and you are there where I knew you would be.
    Keep going!
